Ghezzal wants Leicester City exit

Ghezzal arrived at Leicester in the summer of 2018 from French side Monaco, but spent last season on loan at Serie A club Fiorentina after a difficult debut campaign with the Foxes.

Now the 28-year-old Algerian could depart the King Power Stadium permanently just 2 years, 1 goal and 19 Premier League appearances later.

It’s understood Ghezzal is keen to stay in Serie A with Fiorentina on a permanent basis, but Italian sports outlet TuttoMercatoWeb say the Florence club aren’t prepared to exercise the €10m option to buy clause.

Leicester aren’t averse to letting Ghezzal leave the club, and Fiorentina would like to keep him – however there will likely be some negotiating on that €10m price tag if he is to remain in Italy permanently.
